After introducing the rules, I give each student a sticky note with a base word on it. The students read the word and sort them under the correct flip. This gets them up and moving. I also have them explain why they chose to put that word under that flap.
For suffixes -er and -est, we made these flip books.
We then switch over to suffixes -ful, -ly, and -y. We start off by discussing what these suffixes mean and match up base words to the correct suffixes. I gave each student a base word and suffix…they had to find their match.
To get that independent practice in, we matched base words to the correct suffixes with these flip flap books.
We also completed this Flip It activity. Students had to write the correct suffix under each flip. I love how this friend illustrated each word. This was not part of the directions, but I sure do love when they go above and beyond!
Now that we have wrapped up our suffix learning, we will start prefixes this week!
While I’m sitting at OT for little P, I thought I’d share a fine motor activity with y’all! 😬 I’ll be doing preschool with him at home next year (his daycare got torn up by a storm🌪) and fine motor + alphabet are two things we’ll be hitting all year. So, I wanted to incorporate as much of both into one activity as I could. 💪 These lacing cards are going to work his little fingers all while learning the alphabet and letter sounds. 🍎 These (+ several other fine motor mats) are available in my store! // Link below 💜💜 www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Alphabet-Activities-Lacing-Letter-Mats-Fine-Motor-Lacing-Card......

A few years ago I used this Friend-Diagram activity with my students to teach compare and contrast! I always love how they turn out! It’s FREE on the blog and I re-shared it in my Weekly Recap (several weeks ago) on the blog, too! Hope you can use it! Link here 👉 // smittenwithfirstblog.com/weekly-recap-3/... See MoreSee Less
Sticky Tables was a class favorite years ago! It gets kiddos up and moving!! 🤩 It works with multiple subject areas/standards and can also be used for informal assessments! 👍 My last post showed how to use it with skip counting and here I show it used with subitizing/number sense, ABC order, and handwriting practice. See previous post for directions on how to play 💜💜 ... See MoreSee Less
Re-sharing this skip counting number lines activity from years ago! 👉 Skip counting from any given number is such an important skill for our little ones - not just reciting 2,4,6,8,etc! Here's how we did it! Put sticky notes on the table, each student chooses one sticky note to start off with and then they just fill in the boxes using an expo marker on their desk! You could even use washi tape to create the number lines! ... See MoreSee Less
